littleBits is a New York-based startup that was founded in September 2011. littleBits makes electronic modules (littleBit), with specific functions (light, sound, sensors, buttons, pulse, motors, etc), that snap together with magnets for prototyping, learning, and fun.
These modules are coloured tiny circuit-boards that allows to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge. No soldering, wiring or programming required. littleBits sells various kits that include a growing number of modules with different functions. littleBits is also an open source community who experiment, share online, and learn from each other’s creativity.
